Australasian Environmental Law Enforcement and Regulators neTwork.

The Australasian Environmental Law Enforcement and Regulators neTwork (AELERT) is a well-respected and internationally recognised professional network for environmental regulators across Australasia.

AELERT members work in local, state and federal government agencies and other relevant organisations, to implement and administer environmental legislation. AELERT offers members a professional forum in which they can:

  • Share and solve common issues;       
  • Identify best practice and consistent approaches to environmental regulation;       
  • Access a range of industry resources and networking opportunities;       
  • Collaborate to exchange resources, information, knowledge and experience.

AELERT is supported by a full time Leadership Team. 

Formally established in 2003, AELERT’s current membership includes over 250 member agencies and more than 3,000 individual members.

AELERT plays an important role in securing a sustainable Australasia through the advancement of best practice environmental regulation. As such, the core of AELERT’s activities concern facilitating cross-jurisdictional collaboration on mutual regulatory challenges; promoting the development of the regulatory craft; and fostering capacity building across the Network.

Whilst the Network undertakes its activities primarily through projects undertaken by its Clusters (or working groups), the AELERT Leadership Team also provides a range of professional development opportunities including webinars on topics of cross-jurisdictional significance, jurisdiction-based networking events and AELERT’s premiere event – the biennial AELERT Conference.
